EGNOS:Fit to FLy
The recent certification of the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) for safety of life applications now means that its performance is of a high enough standard that it can be used for aviation. Pilots can reliably use it as a navigation tool, enhancing the performance of stand-alone GPS.

This means navigations systems for aircraft can now be produced knowing that the systems they will use are certified, robust and reliable. Designers and manufacturers of these systems will therefore need certifiable, robust and reliable test tools and methodologies in order to help ensure their products are fit for purpose. GNSS RF simulators are the ideal tool for such work. As precision test equipment, simulators can be readily certified for use in testing safety-critical systems. Spirent's GNSS RF simulators are able to generate EGNOS signals (and signals for the other augmentation systems such as WAAS, MSAS, LAAS and QZSS) and have been verified by the US, European and Russian authorities as the standard in GPS, Galileo and GLONASS test, so you can trust Spirent with confidence for your test needs. No other method or tool for GNSS test can be appropriately certified for critical, safety of life applications.

Why not call Spirent today to find out how your systems can take to the skies with the sure and certain confidence that in all operating conditions they will help protect human life in the air and on the ground.
